"The grant was to create, research and present an exhibition of World War I soldiers' photographs and service records for the community,” Rose said.

"The exhibition is scheduled for early December this year to be held at Gatakers Art Gallery.

"Work has begun with three class groups contributing to the research, visual arts printmaking and photo editing for the event.
